I have to first say that most decent eateries in Northampton on a Sunday are very busy with wait times. I also have to say up front we ate here because I broke my first rule of dining "Don't Wait Until your Starving to Decide!"...More

Homemade breads (sunflower seed and pumpkin breads were fabulous!), breakfast poutine with flat-iron steak and eggs, excellent Eggs Benedict selections (Eggs Benedict Sly's Way were Wicked Awesome!) and best hot chocolate drinks I've ever had! A must if you're in the NoHa/Amherst area!

Creative menu and fresh food at a reasonable price. There are often lines and a long wait on the weekends, but there's good reason for that. It's a local landmark that is well worth a visit. Lunch is yummy too and less busy.

This is a wonderful place. Crowded but not overbearing atmosphere with very good NE food. Breakfast items are very good.

there may be a waiting line in the weekends, but it is worth waiting for. The breakfast menu has numerous items to chose from and the be asked goods are homemade and made daily.

This place is very popular, as the food and service is top notch. Never had a bad meal or mad service. Will return.

They accommodate gluten free diets nicely. Re- comment on the wait. It is a very popular restaurant. Getting there early makes it easy. I never go after 9am.
